All Inclusive versus Semi Inclusive

Recommended Posts

Thank you for taking time to answer questions. We will be first time Ama cruisers (not new to river cruising) on August 5, from Paris. We weren’t sure if Ama was going to check all our river line boxes because all inclusive is important to us. We decided on Ama because of the wonderful reviews here on Cruise Critic.  My question is in regards to your research, are river lines going more towards inclusive, or semi inclusive. We can not wait to be aboard AmaDante.

There are many definitions of “all-inclusive” within the travel industry but for AmaWaterways it has always meant including the best options so our guests can enjoy the freedom of personalizing their river cruise experience. Most important for us was including, at no extra charge, the choice of up to 23 excursions during a 7-night river cruise - all conducted in small groups with knowledgeable guides; all meals on board are included and we never charge extra for our specialty restaurants; we love helping our guests discover regional wines so we offer a choice of hand selected quality wines during lunch and dinner that changes every day; and we love hosting a daily complimentary Sip & Sail cocktail hour before dinner to encourage our guests to mingle and share their experiences of the day We include gourmet coffee and tea stations, Wellness classes, bicycles and helmets and lots of evening entertainment. Additional cost for spa treatments, laundry, drinks at the bar outside of mealtimes and gratuities remain an individual choice.
